a few weeks ago i bought King Kong on blu ray. it is amazing, everything from the picture to the sound is so clear. the extra features are incredible, it is so interesting to learn how this movie was made and how much work went into making it. if you are a fan in anyway of King Kong pick it up on blu ray. it even comes with a little booklet.

Saw this at a few Conventions in the early-mid 1970s..At one I met Orville Goldner(one of the tech crew on the 1933 classic)and got a signed copy of his book The Making of King Kong..I saw it a whole slew of times on TV during 1976, after they pasted the lost footage back in ,it made the rounds again and again!

It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
